Al Najah Education has become the first school group to offer discounts on term three school fees, following the announcement yesterday by the UAE that distance education would continue though until the next academic year.

The group says it will offer 20 percent off the fees for the third school term for Horizon English School and Horizon International School.  

Parents who have already paid in full will receive an equivalent credit against next year’s fees.

The school group says it has spent the last month "doing contingency planning" for several outcomes, one of which was that schools would stay closed until the summer.

"With the discount, we are doing our part to help families through the hard times that lie ahead. Our schools will also make changes to the e-learning system to help parents cope with a longer distance learning period. We will make sure all the students catch up on lost learning when schools reopen, with extended classes and blended learning” - Raza Khan, CEO of Al Najah Education

Parents have been increasingly vocal that they want term three fees to be reduced given the extension of online learning. Now one school group has made the move, other schools are unlikely to be able to resist the pressure to follow.
